My sweet Twirly Swirl Girl and Joe have now celebrated their six month anniversary. That they have barely known each other a year makes this milestone one measured carefully by mothers wanting the best for their own offspring.
You can tell by our postures when we are together that each of us is ready to defend the twenty something years our children have lived on this earth that we have been responsible for. We each know that we have been good mothers.
We have now hosted each others families in our home, a measuring by our own standards spoken of to our husbands on the long drive that separates our homes.
Our differences in beliefs will always keep us at arms length, but on one very important detail it seems we will be a united front. Both of our children have stepped out of the light of the tenants of religion. Both do not share the beliefs of their parents. Both mothers are waiting for them to hear the call of God.
We both agree that it can not have been by accident that our two children should have found each other. Each mother hoping for someone who would draw their own child back towards God. Each with children convinced of their own convictions.
With two mothers sending the same prayers to Heaven before they close their eyes, there can only be a happy ending for newlyweds, Joe and Kellye.
